The Department of Operations & Information Systems understands it’s one thing to create complex information systems and processes, and it’s another to know how to manage them in a way that makes a business more efficient, effective and competitive. Employees with these skills are considered invaluable assets to any company. That’s why demand for employees trained in Information Systems (IS) and Operations Management (OM) is skyrocketing, and why positions in these fields are some of America’s best paying jobs.

Degrees in Operations & Information Systems

OIS Conferences

The Department of Operations and Information Systems at the David Eccles School of Business hosts or co-hosts three winter conferences: the Utah Winter Operations Conference, the Product/Service Innovation (PSI) Conference and the Winter Conference on Business Analytics. The three are annual conferences that take place during the early months of each calendar year. The conferences include research paper presentations by top researchers from across the world in the disciplines of operations management, information systems, product and service innovation and the interface between marketing and operations. In most years, they take place at or near one of Utah’s fabulous ski resorts and all conferences feature winter activities such as downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing.
